Mothering to death. (1/1334)

Three families are described in which the healthy only child was, from early childhood, put to bed and treated as if ill, dependent, and incapable. This abnormal mothering continued for 28, 45, and 48 years, respectively, and the children died as disabled adults. In each case, the three mothers evaded medical, educational, and social services. The origins of their behaviour are examined, and the links with more common forms of separation anxiety, school refusal, and perceived and factitious illness are discussed.  (+info)

The prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies. (2/1334)

AIM: To obtain a prevalence rate and determine the distribution of accidental bruising in babies. METHODS: 177 babies aged 6-12 months were examined naked to look for bruises. They were seen in health visitor hearing test clinics and child health surveillance clinics. The site, size, shape, and colour of bruises were recorded on a skin map, and the parent's explanation noted. Any other injury was recorded. Data collection included the baby's age, mobility and weight, demographic details, and health visitor concerns. RESULTS: Twenty two babies had bruises, giving a prevalence rate of 12%. There was a total of 32 bruises, 15 babies had one bruise. All bruises were found on the front of the body and were located over bony prominences. Twenty five of the bruises were on the face and head, and seven were on the shin. The babies with bruises on the shin were mobile. There was a highly significant increase in bruises with increase in mobility. CONCLUSIONS: The study has produced a prevalence and distribution of bruising in babies and sets a baseline from which to work when assessing bruises. It also tested out the methodology, which could be used in further research, particularly of younger babies. Clinicians need to assess a baby's level of development when considering whether a bruise is accidental.  (+info)

Primary prevention of child abuse. (3/1334)

In 1993, the U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect declared a child protection emergency. Between 1985 and 1993, there was a 50 percent increase in reported cases of child abuse. Three million cases of child abuse are reported in the United States each year. Treatment of the abuser has had only limited success and child protection agencies are overwhelmed. Recently, efforts have begun to focus on the primary prevention of child abuse. Primary prevention of child abuse is defined as any intervention that prevents child abuse before it occurs. Primary prevention must be implemented on many levels before it can be successful. Strategies on the societal level include increasing the "value" of children, increasing the economic self-sufficiency of families, discouraging corporal punishment and other forms of violence, making health care more accessible and affordable, expanding and improving coordination of social services, improving the identification and treatment of psychologic problems, and alcohol and drug abuse, providing more affordable child care and preventing the birth of unwanted children. Strategies on the familial level include helping parents meet their basic needs, identifying problems of substance abuse and spouse abuse, and educating parents about child behavior, discipline, safety and development.  (+info)

Unnatural sudden infant death. (4/1334)

AIM: To identify features to help paediatricians differentiate between natural and unnatural infant deaths. METHOD: Clinical features of 81 children judged by criminal and family courts to have been killed by their parents were studied. Health and social service records, court documents, and records from meetings with parents, relatives, and social workers were studied. RESULTS: Initially, 42 children had been certified as dying from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and 29 were given another cause of natural death. In 24 families, more than one child died; 58 died before the age of 6 months and most died in the afternoon or evening. Seventy per cent had experienced unexplained illnesses; over half were admitted to hospital within the previous month, and 15 had been discharged within 24 hours of death. The mother, father, or both were responsible for death in 43, five, and two families, respectively. Most homes were disadvantaged--no regular income, receiving income support--and mothers smoked. Half the perpetrators had a history of somatising or factitious disorder. Death was usually by smothering and 43% of children had bruises, petechiae, or blood on the face. CONCLUSIONS: Although certain features are indicative of unnatural infant death, some are also associated with SIDS. Despite the recent reduction in numbers of infants dying suddenly, inadequacies in the assessment of their deaths exist. Until a thorough postmortem examination is combined with evaluation of the history and circumstances of death by an experienced paediatrician, most cases of covert fatal abuse will go undetected. The term SIDS requires revision or abandonment.  (+info)

Adolescents' pregnancy intentions: relations to life situations and caretaking behaviors prenatally and 2 years postpartum. (5/1334)

PURPOSE: This study explores if and how adolescents' pregnancy intentions relate to life situations and health-related behaviors prenatally and up to 2 years postpartum. METHODS: Adolescent girls who reported that they had "wanted a baby" (n = 75) as their reason for pregnancy were compared with those who reported that the pregnancy "just happened" (n = 79) at four separate time periods: prenatally, at 6 and 24 months postpartum, and at 18 months postpartum for teens who became pregnant again subsequent to the study pregnancy. RESULTS: Those who stated that they wanted a baby were more likely to be Hispanic, married, and out of school before becoming pregnant. They were less likely to receive welfare as their primary means of support and to have run away from home in the past than teens who stated that their pregnancy just happened. Self-reported reason for pregnancy was unrelated to repeat pregnancy by 18 months postpartum, but those who had wanted the study baby were less likely to undergo elective termination of a subsequent pregnancy and less likely to become pregnant by a different partner. The groups diverged at 24 months postpartum when those who wanted a baby were more likely to be married to the father of the baby, be financially supported by him, receive child care assistance from him, and have attempted or succeeded at breastfeeding the study child. CONCLUSION: Self-reported reason for pregnancy reveals many important characteristics of pregnant adolescents both at the time of presentation and up to 2 years postpartum. Young women in this study who reported intentional pregnancy seem to fare better with regard to their financial status and their relationship with the father of the baby.  (+info)

Vulvovaginitis: clinical features, aetiology, and microbiology of the genital tract. (6/1334)

AIM: To clarify the contribution of clinical and environmental factors and infection to the aetiology of vulvovaginitis in premenarchal girls, and to determine clinical indicators of an infectious cause. DESIGN: It was necessary first to define normal vaginal flora. Cases were 50 premenarchal girls > 2 years old with symptoms of vulvovaginitis; 50 controls were recruited from girls in the same age group undergoing minor or elective surgery. RESULTS: Interview questionnaire showed no difference between cases and controls in regards to hygiene practices, exposure to specific irritants, or history of possible sexual abuse. Normal vaginal flora was similar to that described in previous studies, with the exception of organisms likely to be associated with sexual activity. 80% of cases had no evidence of an infectious cause. In the 10 cases in whom an infectious cause was found, there was significantly more visible discharge and distinct redness of the genital area on examination compared with other cases. CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that vulvovaginitis in this age group is not usually infectious or necessarily related to poor hygiene, specific irritants or sexual abuse, although any of these can present with genital irritation. The possibility of sexual abuse should always be considered when a child presents with genital symptoms, but our data indicate it is not a common contributing factor. Infection is generally associated with vaginal discharge and moderate or severe inflammation.  (+info)

The association between tender points, psychological distress, and adverse childhood experiences: a community-based study. (7/1334)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the hypothesis that characteristics of somatization and illness behavior, and their childhood antecedents, are associated with the presence of multiple tender points. METHODS: Two hundred eighty-nine subjects who had demonstrated psychological distress (General Health Questionnaire score > or =2) had a tender point examination and in-depth psychological evaluation. In addition, subjects were interviewed about a number of adverse childhood experiences. The 99 subjects with 5 or more tender points were compared with the remaining 190 subjects. RESULTS: A high tender point count (> or =5) was associated with low levels of self-care (odds ratio [OR] 2.4, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.1-5.0), reports of a greater number of somatic symptoms (OR 2.2, 95% CI 1.0-4.9), high levels of fatigue (OR 3.3, 95% CI 1.7-6.3), and a pattern of illness behavior characterized by increased medical care usage (OR 4.2, 95% CI 2.1-8.4). Those with high tender point counts were substantially more likely to report adverse childhood experiences, including loss of parents (OR 2.1, 95% CI 1.1-3.9) and abuse (OR 6.9, 95% CI 2.0-24.6). These results were not explained by the presence of chronic pain. CONCLUSION: These data add further weight to the hypothesis that tender points, as part of the fibromyalgia syndrome, are strongly associated with specific components of psychological distress as well as characteristics of somatization and its antecedents. It is possible that these features contribute to the development of the syndrome of fibromyalgia.  (+info)

How can we boost IQs of "dull children"?: A late adoption study. (8/1334)

From 5,003 files of adopted children, 65 deprived children, defined as abused and/or neglected during infancy, were strictly selected with particular reference to two criteria: (i) They were adopted between 4 and 6 years of age, and (ii) they had an IQ <86 (mean = 77, SD = 6.3) before adoption. The average IQs of adopted children in lower and higher socioeconomic status (SES) families were 85 (SD = 17) and 98 (SD = 14.6), respectively, at adolescence (mean age = 13.5 years). The results show (i) a significant gain in IQ dependent on the SES of the adoptive families (mean = 7.7 and mean = 19.5 IQ points in low and high SES, respectively), (ii) IQs after adoption are significantly correlated with IQs before adoption, and (iii) during adolescence, verbal IQs are significantly lower than performance IQs.  (+info)

Learn child neglect signs and how to report child neglect. If signs of child neglect are seen, a child neglect report should be filed with authorities.
On Wednesday, May 6, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Representative Kim Schrier (D-WA), and colleagues introduced the Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act that would bolster efforts by child protective services and non-profits to prevent abuse. The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) provides funding to states to improve child protective services and funds community-based activities that stops child abuse and neglect before it happens, and the Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act would strengthen CAPTA.. The Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act would provide $500 million in emergency funds for local child protective services and $1 billion for community-based child abuse prevention programs. Child welfare and human service agencies across the country that play a role in preventing child abuse are challenged with conducting home visits or communicating virtual with children and family during the pandemic. During COVID-19 pandemic, children are at home and can be at risk ...

Aim: To examine prevalence rates of child physical abuse perpetrated by a parent/caretaker, abuse characteristics and the extent of disclosures. Methods: A population-based survey was carried out in 2008 amongst all the pupils in three different grades (n = 8494) in schools in Sodermanland County, Sweden. The pupils were asked about their exposure to violence and their experiences of parental intimate-partner violence. Data were analysed with bi- and multivariate models and a comparison between means of accumulating risk factors between three groups were performed. Results: A total of 15.2% of the children reported that they had been hit. There were strong associations between abuse and risk factors and there was a dose-response relationship between risks and reported abuse. It was shown that children who reported parental intimate-partner violence were at a considerably higher risk for abuse than other children and that only 7% of the children exposed to violence had disclosed this to ...

Background. Child physical abuse (CPA) is an extensive public health problem because of its associations with poor health outcomes. The aim of this study was to examine which of the background factors of CPA committed by a parent or other caregiver relates to self-reported poor health among girls and boys (13; 15 and 17 years old): perpetrator, last year exposure; severity and frequency; socioeconomic load and foreign background.. Methods. In a cross-sectional study in a Swedish county (n = 8024) a path analysis was performed to evaluate a model where all background variables were put as predictors of three health-status variables: mental; physical and general health problems. In a second step a log linear analysis was performed to examine how the distribution over the health-status categories was different for different combinations of background factors.. Results. Children exposed to CPA reported poor health to a much higher extent than those who were not exposed. In the path analysis it was ...

Child neglect, often overlooked, is the most common form of child maltreatment. Most perpetrators of child abuse and neglect are the parents themselves. A total of 79.4% of the perpetrators of abused and neglected children are the parents of the victims, and of those 79.4% parents, 61% exclusively neglect their children. The physical, emotional, and cognitive developmental impacts from child neglect in early childhood can be detrimental as the effects from the neglect can carry on into adulthood. Research has shown that by the time a child reaches the age of six, if they have experienced adverse exposures, such as neglect, their chances of having overall poor physical health increases by two-fold. Infants can develop poor physical health if neglect starts even before the child is born. A child deprived of basic necessities, such as proper pre-natal care, is at risk of being born prematurely or having complications during birth. A common outcome of medical neglect is failure to thrive in infants ...

Reporting [child abuse] frequently becomes an ethical dilemma as a result of complex interactions among several factors including diverse professional contexts, legal requirements, professional-ethical standards, and the circumstances of suspected abuse. The reporting dilemma also reflects the fact that breaching confidentiality and breaking the law both constitute unethical behavior. However, beyond the professional difficulties in dealing with child abuse and neglect, there is a distinct need to intervene on behalf of the children victimized by abuse.Currently, an estimated one million children are victims of child abuse and neglect each year. In 1996, child protective services in all states investigated more than two million reports and substantiated just under one million, child abuse victims. Approximately 1,000 victims, who were previously known by child protective services, died as a result of abuse and neglect. Because of legal requirements, over fifty percent of all investigated ...
Child abuse within U.S. Army families may be significantly under-reported, a new study suggests. Researchers found that only one-fifth of diagnosed child abuse and neglect cases among U.S. Army-dependent children from 2004 to 2007 had a substantiated report with the Armys Family Advocacy Program (FAP). The program is responsible for investigating and treating child abuse. Thats less than half the rate (44 percent) of child abuse cases substantiated by civilian Child Protective Services, according to the study.

It was further amended by the Child Abuse Prevention Challenge Grants Reauthorization Act of 1989 (P.L. 101-126 and the Drug Free School Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226). The Community-Based Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Grants was a program that was originally authorized by Sections 402 to 409 of the Continuing Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1985 (Public Law 98-473). The Child Abuse Prevention Challenge Grants Reauthorization Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-126) transferred the program to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, as amended. A new Title III, Certain Preventive Services Regarding Children of Homeless Families or Families at Risk of Homelessness, was added to the Child Abuse and Neglect and Treatment Act by the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act Amendments of 1990 (Public Law 101-645). The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act ...
This paper uses a maximum likelihood procedure that accounts for unobserved heterogeneity in the sample to implement a preference-based model to assess factors that influence parents likelihood of losing their composure and physically abusing their children. A basic supposition of the model is that parents prefer to deal with parent-child conflict by choosing tactics and behaviors that do not exceed a specified level of violence; however, endogenous parent and child behaviors and exogenous circumstances may arouse parents emotions that cause this level to be exceeded. Our results suggest policy interventions that influence such circumstances and associated behaviors may strongly influence the incidence of physical child abuse. We estimate the ex ante annual value parents attach to risk reductions of self-composure losses associated with excessive parent-child violence. This value is shown to be greater than currently estimated annual savings in ex post costs associated with a comparable ...

Any person who believes that a childs physical or mental health or welfare has been or may be adversely affected by abuse or neglect, or that a child has died of abuse or neglect, MUST immediately report their suspicions to a law enforcement agency or the Texas Department of Human Services, Child Protective Services (Texas Family Code 261.101). Failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect, or making a false or malicious report of child abuse or neglect, are criminal offenses that may be punished by fine, imprisonment or both. A person who makes a report of child abuse or neglect in good faith, without malice, or who collaborates in the investigation of child abuse or neglect is immune from civil or criminal liability (Texas Family Code 261.106 ...
Sponsor(s): American Academy of Pediatrics - Ohio Chapter. Title: 2016 Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention - Self-Assessment. Description: Pediatricians and others caring for children who may be in need of child abuse and neglect prevention in primary care pediatrics should be aware of and use best practices in child abuse and neglect prevention for pediatrics with the goal of increasing awareness of risks, recommendations, and pathophysiology for primary and secondary prevention in Ohio. Primary healthcare providers can identify children at risk and often prevent the occurrence of future abuse or neglect if they are properly educated on how to mitigate these risks.. The 2016 Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Self-assesment contains 50 questions that address common terminology in the process of child abuse and neglect prevention and treatment in pediatric practice; guidance for the primary practitioner on specific topics and terminology in sexual abuse, human trafficking, physical assessments; ...
Abstract: Previous maltreatment literature examining child physical abuse potential relied heavily upon maternal only samples, limiting our understanding of paternal risk factors. Moreover, the extent to which relationship and individual factors interact to impact abuse risk is not well known. The current study examined whether couple level functioning (i.e., relationship quality and coparenting) moderated the relation between stress and measures of physical abuse risk for parents (i.e., spillover) and their partners (i.e., crossover). Questionnaires assessing parental subjective appraisal of stress, relationship quality, perceptions of a parenting team, and abuse risk were administered to 81 parents from the community. As expected, for both parents, higher stress strongly predicted elevated abuse potential (BCAPI) and more reactive parenting discipline styles (PS) and, for fathers only, negative parenting beliefs (AAPI), and more physically aggressive discipline strategies (CTSPC).

Medical neglect can have serious consequences. There is little evidence base to guide medical neglect management and research. Our objective was to describe a group of children reported to child protective services (CPS) for medical neglect to define this population as well as identify prevention and intervention approaches. This was a retrospective descriptive study of all patients at a pediatric hospital reported to CPS for medical neglect over a 6-year period. Data about health, health care, CPS involvement, and social history were obtained through medical record review. Of the 154 patients reported for medical neglect, 140 (91%) had chronic illness. The most common diagnoses were type 1 diabetes, organ transplantation, and prematurity-related conditions. Most patients (83%) were black or Hispanic and 90% were publically insured. More than half of patients (54%) had >1 CPS report during the study period. Almost all patients (88%) returned to the hospital for care subsequent to the medical ...
Many different clinical diagnosis overlap with the symptoms of child abuse. A keen clinical approach is necessary to ensure all children being abused are identified without over-testing or the social impact of a child abuse investigation. Ultimately a clinician must evaluate all possible reasons for findings on history and physical and make a decision about the risk probability of abuse.. The most common physical finding in child abuse is bruising. Many disease processes may mimic bruising therefore the American Academy of Pediatrics has published guidelines regarding the evaluation for bleeding disorders when child abuse is suspected. These guidelines focus on detailed medical, social and family history in addition to a full exam.. Fractures are often a concerning sign for child abuse. Rare, but possible metabolic bone diseases may place a child at a higher risk of fractures. Investigation into these disease processes as well as labs for osteopenia may be warranted in patients with multiple or ...
According to Radar, Child Protective Services has launched an investigation after the photo of their 13 year old daughter in bed with a half naked 20 year old man surfaced on the internet. Apparently this will involve interviews with the parents and Willow and the 20 year old who caused all the uproar. The investigation will last about a month and then a report will be filed. I dont think Will and Jada are going to lose custody or have any charges filed, but I would like to know what the guy has to say about all of this and if he gets caught in some type of lie or does say there was something going on between himself and Jada. I guess this means the world is not really covert pedophiles like Jada seems to think we are. I think this is the right thing to do and I think there would have been some outrage if they didnt at least give it a look. We are talking about a 13 year old here and it wouldnt be the first time in recorded history that a mom didnt really know the full truth about what was ...
In her latest Newman Weekly, Muriel Newman takes to task those supporting the daft notion of licensing parents.. Muriel quotes academic Stephen Baskerville from his Human Events article; How the Government Creates Child Abuse the real scandal is the armies of officials who have been allowed to acquire - using taxpayers dollars - a vested interest in abused children. Devising child abuse programs makes us all feel good, but there is no evidence they make the slightest difference. In fact, they probably make the problem worse. Child abuse is largely a product of the feminist-dominated family law and social work industries. It is a textbook example of the government creating a problem for itself to solve. Child abuse is entirely preventable. A few decades ago, there was no child abuse epidemic; it grew up with the welfare system and the divorce revolution. It continues because of entrenched interests who are employed pretending to combat it. ...

Childhood maltreatment is an important risk factor for mental and physical health problems. Adolescents living in residential youth care (RYC) have experienced a high rate of childhood maltreatment and are a high-risk group for psychiatric disorders. Quality of life (QoL) is a subjective, multidimensional concept that goes beyond medical diagnoses. There is a lack of research regarding the associations between childhood maltreatment and QoL. In the present study, we compare self-reported QoL between adolescents in RYC in Norway with and without maltreatment histories, and adolescents from the general population. We also study the impact of number of types of adversities on QoL. Adolescents aged 12-23 years living in RYC in Norway were invited to participate in the study; 400 participated, yielding a response rate of 67 %. Maltreatment histories were assessed through interviews with trained research assistants, and completed by 335 adolescents. Previous exposure to maltreatment was reported by 237

Washington--The Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs last week approved a wide-ranging measure that would authorize $92 million over the next four years to combat child abuse and family violence on Indian lands.. The Indian child protective services and family violence prevention act, S 2340, sponsored by Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, would provide $3 million a year to establish Indian child resources centers within each area office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.. The bill also would authorize grants to tribes totaling $10 million a year to establish child protective services that would have authority to investigate reports of abuse and neglect.. The measure also would authorize three-year matching grants totaling $10 million to encourage tribes to treat and prevent family violence and to shelter and assist victims.. The grants would cover 75 per4cent of the cost of such programs and would be administered by the Indian Health Service.. Senator Daniel K. Inouye, the ...
The role of the pediatrician encompasses prevention of abuse and detection and medical management of victims of abuse. Accurate identification of children who are suspected victims of abuse can facilitate appropriate evaluation, referral, investigation, and outcomes for these children and their families.16 Children usually sustain abuse at the hands of a caregiver who misinterprets and responds inappropriately to the childs behavior. For example, caregivers who had smothered, shook, or slapped their infant within the first 6 months of life were more likely to be worried about crying and to believe that their infants cried excessively.17 There is a close correlation between the age-specific incidence curve of infants hospitalized with abusive head trauma and the age-specific normal crying behavior of infants up to 36 weeks of age.18. In an anonymous telephone survey of 1435 mothers, 2.6% of children younger than 2 years were shaken by their mothers as a means of discipline.19 Caregivers may ...
Child maltreatment may affect autonomic nervous system (ANS) responsivity, and ANS responsivity may influence the impact of child maltreatment on later outcomes including long-term mental/physical health. This review systematically evaluated the evidence regarding effects of maltreatment on ANS responsivity in children and examined how ANS responsivity may influence the association between maltreatment and psychopathology, with attention to relevant developmental issues. We searched the literature for relevant studies using Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines. We searched five electronic databases, performed key word searches in relevant journals, hand searched reference sections of relevant articles, and contacted experts in the field. Articles were extracted according to inclusion criteria and their quality assessed. The search produced 1,388 articles; 22 met inclusion criteria. Most of the studies suggested blunted cardiovascular responsivity ...

A study carried out on behalf of the NSPCC found that 1 in 10 children in the UK have experienced neglect and that 1 in 5 children have experienced severe maltreatment.*. Shocking isnt it?. We read horrendous statistics like this, but often we think that these things happen a long way away, in urban, over crowded, inner city locations and not in my town, village or street.. Unfortunately the statistics tell a different story and children are suffering closer than you think.. That child you see when you drop the kids of at school every day, who arrives late and alone looking hungry and tired?. The aggressive kid you see at the park sometimes, always unsupervised and without a suitable coat or footwear?. The withdrawn, quiet kid next door whose parent or carer goes out a lot and leaves them home alone, who you hear crying through the wall.. These are all forms of child neglect and North Yorkshire Police is inviting individuals, communities, businesses and organisations across the region to ...

A mother in Highlands County is facing child neglect charges after her arrest on Tuesday in relation to her 9-year-old daughters death.
The traumatic effects of child abuse and neglect can persist for decades, often with substantial economic consequences, researchers report. We found associations of child neglect and abuse with adult socioeconomic circumstances at age 50, said lead author Snehal Pinto Pereira. Physical, social or emotional abuse in childhood was linked at midlife to a greater risk of time off from work due to long-term sickness, said Pereira, a research associate at University College Londons Institute of Child Health. Mistreatment in childhood also lowered the odds of owning a home, she said. The associations for child neglect were linked to their poor reading and mathematics skills in adolescence, which in turn could hamper their ability to find work and progress in the job market, she explained.

AbstractBackground: Adverse childhood experiences exert a psychological and physiological toll that increases risk of chronic conditions, poorer social functioning, and cognitive impairment in adulthood. Objective: To investigate the relationship between childhood adversity and clinical disease features in multiple sclerosis (MS).Methods: Sixty-seven participants with MS completed the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) assessment and neuropsychological assessments as part of a larger clinical trial of cognitive remediation. Results: ACE scores, a measure of exposure to adverse events in childhood, significantly predicted age of MS onset (r= 0.30, p=0.04). ACEs were also linked to reading recognition (a proxy for premorbid IQ); (r= 0.25, p=0.04). ACE scores were not related to age, current disability, or current level of cognitive impairment measured by the Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT).Conclusion: Childhood adversity may increase the likelihood of earlier age of onset and poorer estimated

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that can have negative, lasting effects on health and well-being. These experiences range from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse to parental divorce or the incarceration of a parent or guardian. A growing body of research has sought to quantify the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences and illuminate their connection with negative behavioral and health outcomes, such as obesity, alcoholism, and depression, later in life. However, prior research has not reported on the prevalence of ACEs among children in a nationally representative, non-clinical sample. In this brief, we describe the prevalence of one or more ACEs among children ages birth through 17, as reported by their parents, using nationally representative data from the 2011/12 National Survey of Childrens Health (NSCH). We estimate the prevalence of eight specific ACEs for the U.S., contrasting the prevalence of specific ACEs among the states and between children of

The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) Child File dataset consists of child-specific data of all investigated reports of maltreatment to State child protective service agencies. The NCANDS is a federally-sponsored national data collection effort created for the purpose of tracking the volume and nature of child maltreatment reporting each year within the United States. The Child File is the case-level component of the NCANDS. There is also an NCANDS State-level component, known as the Agency File, but those data are not part of this collection. Child File data are collected annually through the voluntary participation of States. Participating States submit their data after going through a process in which the States administrative system is mapped to the NCANDS data structure. Submitted data consist of all investigations or assessments of alleged child maltreatment that received a disposition in the reporting year. Records are provided at the level of each child on a report, ...
Date: Tuesday, February 2, 2010, 8:59 PM The Fourth National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect (NIS-4) just released its findings. It shows that in the period from 1993 to 2005/6 the annual rate of sexual abuse declined substantially (44% under the Harm Standard (HS) and 47% under the Endangerment Standard, a more liberal definition of child maltreatment). The rate of physical abuse declined as well (down 23% under the HS and 29% under the ES). The rate of emotional abuse declined 33% under the HS and 48% under the ES. Interestingly, the rate of emotional neglect ROSE 83% under the ES. These findings provide some additional perspectives on the question of whether various forms of child maltreatment have been declining since the early 1990s. First, it adds one more set of data showing declines in physical and sexual abuse during this period, adding to data from NCANDS, the National Crime Victimization Survey, and the Minnesota state student survey.

The AAP has assembled key reports, studies and other resources to assist reporters in their research on child abuse and abusive head trauma.
Fighting child abuse and neglect on the local level also takes admitting theres a problem - whether we are involved in the situation or a witness to it. Long before Coppells mayor allegedly killed her daughter then herself, The Dallas Morning News reports questions began to surface about her actions. According to the paper, the mayor was having financial problems and was being investigated for personal charges to her city credit card. Again, the question silently reverberates, Where there missed or ignored warning signs that the mother needed help? In 911 calls released by the Irving Police Department, the woman accused of strangling her two young children told an emergency operator that her son and daughter were autistic and that she wanted normal kids. The woman and her family were also the subject of Child Protective Services investigation last year. But an agency spokeswoman said there were no signs of neglect or abuse. The question silently echoes, Did family members or friends know ...
OBJECTIVE: There were two aims to this study: first to examine whether emotional abuse and neglect are significant predictors of psychological and somatic symptoms, and lifetime trauma exposure in women presenting to a primary care practice, and second to examine the strength of these relationships after controlling for the effects of other types of childhood abuse and trauma.. METHOD: Two-hundred and five women completed the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (Bernstein et al., 1994), Trauma History Questionnaire (Green, 1996), the Symptom Checklist-revised (Derogatis, 1997), and the Revised Civilian Mississippi Scale for posttraumatic stress disorder (Norris & Perilla, 1996) when presenting to their primary care physician for a visit. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses were conducted to examine unique contributions of emotional abuse and neglect variables on symptom measures while controlling for childhood sexual and physical abuse and lifetime trauma exposure.. RESULTS: A history of ...
Abusive head trauma (AHT) is the leading cause of death in child abuse cases in the United States. AHT results from injuries caused by someone vigorously shaking an infant.
IIIDivision of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, University of Cape Town. To the Editor: Mortality is the most extreme consequence of child abuse, but it is not always conceptualised within the framework of child abuse and neglect. While undertaking research for the recent National Female and Child Homicide Study, it became apparent that medical practitioners, and especially forensic pathologists, often deviate from their legal and ethical obligations when the cause of a death raises suspicion of child abuse or neglect.. During data collection from mortuaries and police interviews, we encountered many instances where the Inquest Act[1] and the Childrens Amendment Act[2] were not adhered to. Frequently, childrens bodies had been released without a police investigation, particularly when death occurred in hospital. Whether it was assumed that a police case had been opened prior to the hospital admission, or whether the required involvement of the police had simply been forgotten, is unclear. In ...
If this was done intentionally or knowingly, then Child Abuse is classified as a Class 2 Felony. If convicted of a Class 2 Felony you face 3-12.5 years in prison, up to 7 years of probation, and up to $150,000 in fines (not inclusive of surcharges). If the victim is under the age of 15 then the offense could be classified as a Dangerous Crime Against Children.

When you fill out your 2008 state income tax forms in the next few weeks or months, youll now have the chance to contribute to child abuse and prevention efforts. The executive director of the non-profit Prevent Child Abuse Iowa, Steve Scott, says its the first year for this check-off. The Iowa check-off program generally serves four causes each year, and those that dont draw the most funds are dropped. There was space available this year, and the legislators decided to make it possible for Iowans to contribute to child abuse prevention.Scott says theyre hoping close to 10,000 Iowans will contribute close to $100,000, based on contributions to check-offs that have done well in the past, including those for State Fair renovations and the Chickadee check-off. Scott says the funds derived from the check-off would be directed to a State-wide program thats been in existence since 1982.. Scott says that program provides benefits and services to 92 of Iowas 99 counties. That may include crisis ...
Child maltreatment has well-established, wide-ranging, and long-term negative effects on children. Most children who have experienced maltreatment and are receiving services through the Child Welfare System (CWS) remain in their homes with their caregivers. While the need for parenting services is extensive, few intervention programs have proven to be efficacious in reducing child abuse and neglect within the CWS population, especially for infants and toddlers. It is essential that social service practitioners within the CWS delivery system are equipped to provide brief interventions to maltreating parents. This grant, Training Social Work Providers: Intervention for Maltreating Families of Infants and Toddlers, is an evaluation of a training program for social welfare providers to implement a brief attachment theory-based intervention to families who have been investigated for child abuse and neglect by Child Protective Services. The program (Promoting First Relationships [PFR]; Kelly, ...

Background: Evidence suggests that childhood physical activity may play a role in the etiology and prevention of adult chronic diseases. Because researchers must often depend on self-recalled physical activity data many years after the exposure, it is important to understand factors which may influence adult recall of childhood physical activity. This study evaluated the influence of adult characteristics on reported childhood physical activity and the association between adult physical activity and self-recalled childhood physical activity. Methods: 48,066 post-menopausal women from the Womens Health Initiative Observational Study reported their physical activity level during ages 5-9, 10-14, and 15-19. Results: In this cohort, over 65% of the population reported the same category of physical activity over the three childhood age groups. While higher levels of childhood physical activity were significantly associated with higher adult physical activity, this association varied by race/ethnicity,

Abusive head trauma (AHT) involves injury to brain or skull, and can be inflicted by a variety of mechanisms, including vigorous shaking of the child. In the United States, AHT is a leading cause of physical child abuse deaths in children less than 5 years of age and accounts for about one-third of all child maltreatment deaths [1]. Incidence of AHT is estimated to occur in 3-4 per 10,000 infants a year and between 5-35% of infants or children who are AHT victims die from their AHT [2-5].

For the last several days, emotions that have run high for generations have clearly reached a boiling point, here in Chicago and throughout the country. The understandable outrage, profound sadness, and deafening demands for change stemming from the death of George Floyd and countless others before him are feelings that we at Prevent Child Abuse America share.

Hi Readers. Heres the latest kids-in-car/mom-arrested story. I know it seems like Ive posted a flood of these cases lately and Ill pause for a bit after this one, but this woman is asking for support and Id like to provide some.. As youll see, its strange that somehow her 3-year-old got out of the car - thats certainly something to look out for - but should she have been investigated by Child Protective Services? Should she have to go to court? Is she an irresponsible parent? No way. - L.. Dear Free-Range Kids: I have found you through researching issues related to child endangerment. I have been charged with second degree child endangerment, in Arkansas, for leaving a sleeping baby and a three-year-old locked in a warm minivan on a cold day for under five minutes.. This happened in December. I immediately hired an attorney, who explained that I hadnt actually violated the statute, and so was not guilty. Then, in February, I was visited by a child protective services worker. He toured my ...

OBJECTIVES: To gain consensus among an ethnically and linguistically diverse group of international child protection experts on the structure and content of a new survey tool for retrospective measurement of child abuse, and to determine the performance of the instrument through an international field trial with young adults.. METHODS: The questionnaire was developed through focus group discussions with international experts, and then subjected to a Delphi study in two waves to determine the perceived importance and translatability of items. The resultant questionnaire was translated into six languages and field tested in seven countries with convenient samples of young adults aged 18-26 years (N=842).. RESULTS: Child maltreatment experts from 28 countries provided input to questionnaire development. Satisfactory agreement on draft item inclusion and exclusion and the translatability of items was gained. The tool includes 15 primary questions about potentially abusive physical, sexual and ...
ABSTRACT INCIDENCE AND CLINICAL PREDICTORS OF INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE IN CHILDREN WITH NON-ACCIDENTAL TRAUMA. PURPOSE Although head CT is a recommended screening tool in suspected child physical abuse, it is sometimes difficult to justify the radiation in neurologically normal children. The Pediatric Emergency Care Research Network (PECARN) criteria for neuro-imaging have been validated in all ages, but not in cases of suspected abuse. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in a population with suspected non-accidental trauma and a Glasgow coma scale score of 15. A secondary aim was to evaluate clinical variables that may demonstrate an increased incidence of ICH.. METHODS/MATERIALS The study cohort, identified by search of the trauma registry of a tertiary trauma center, consisted of patients under 2 years of age who presented to the ED and were evaluated for non-accidental trauma with a GCS of 15 between January 2010 and December 2016. All ...
Posted on 12/20/2008 6:26:02 AM PST by RogerFGay. Last year, Agustin Uribe s conviction for sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl was overturned by California s Sixth Court of Appeals. Why? The San Jose Mercury News reports that the hospital at which the girl was examined maintained a videotape of the examination which showed that no abuse had occurred. Read the story here. Now it develops that the hospital has some 3,000 videotapes of similar examinations in child abuse cases since 1991. As you might expect, defense attorneys in pending and closed cases are seeking access to those tapes. So far we don t know what was on the tape in the Uribe case that caused his conviction to be overturned. We also don t know what, if anything, other tapes will reveal, but we should know soon. One defense attorney has already brought up the specter of the McMartin Pre-School case in which blatant fraud was used to accuse teachers of the most bizarre acts of child sexual and physical abuse. The methods used in that ...

This guest post by Janet Heimlich, founder of the Child-Friendly Faith Project (CFFP), focuses on a new project designed to address the tragic connection that sometimes exists between religion and child maltreatment. Sadly, Texas is no stranger to this problem. The cautionary tale of fundamentalist preacher Lester Roloff and his homes for troubled teens is a case in point. TFN lobbied for years for the Texas Legislature to suspend the alternative (and lenient) licensing program the state maintained for faith-based child care providers like Roloff. That program was finally allowed to expire in 2001, and the Roloff Homes moved out of the state. Janet writes here about a new project that addresses the problem of child abuse in faith communities.. ***. A boy is beaten because he fidgets during a sermon. A girl is made to feel shameful about her unclean sexuality. A teenager is denied medical care because her community only believes in faith healing. When a religious leader molests a child, no one ...
